Greg Gates Talks Managing Gudda Gudda & T-Streets, Confirms New Projects & A Book Being Released

Greg Gate$, who is the manager of Gudda Gudda and T-Streets, recently chopped it up with Top Down Magazine and gave an update on the two Young Money music artists.

In the interview, Greg spoke on how he first met Double G and Streets during the Sqad Up days, not wanting to be their manager at first, and plenty more.

Gates also confirmed that Gudda‘s Guddaville 4 mixtape will still be released, as well as that Mr. Bang Bang will be dropping a sequel to his The Streets Is Watching mixtape and a book which he wrote!

So for those that may not know you. Tell my readers who you are.
My name is Greg Gate$. I’ve been in the music industry since 1996. I started in this business on the artist side, but slowly gravitated more and more to the executive side of things. I started working for Murder Dog Magazine in the early 2000’s and that’s what a lot of people know me from. That led to writing for SOHH.com, The Source Magazine, and later becoming editor for Down Magazine under the pen name Charlie Wade. I’m also known for starting the Greg Gate$ Music Conference on the Gulf Coast. What people know me mainly for now is being the manager for Gudda Gudda and T-Streets for Young Money. I’ve been managing them since 2008.

How did you meet Gudda Gudda and T-Streets?
I actually met them years ago when Sqad Up, Gudda and Streets’ old group, came to the first Greg Gate$ Music Conference/Get’Em Awards around 2005. I actually kept in contact with Kidd Kidd. I knew the old president of their label. Later on when Gudda had signed back with Young Money he went through a bad management situation and I happened to be one of the points of contact for Gudda’s Myspace page and people kept calling me and I would hit Gudda up and tell him someone called for him. He started telling people I was his manager. Lol! Now we’re like family. We call each other brothers. It’s the same with Streets. He’s with G all the time so he’s family too.

What did you see in them that made you want to manage them?
I actually didn’t want to manage him at all when he asked. I was kind of wary of managing artists at that time because it left a bad taste in my mouth with some bad business. I was really only messing with artists that I signed, but Gudda and Streets were pretty straightforward dudes and we vibe on a more personal level. They understood me and I understood them and they’re loyal cats. If they’re riding with you they’re riding with you.

What’s next for you and the artists that you manage?
Right now, Gudda and Millz are out on tour with Wayne. Guddaville 4 is coming. Streets has a book coming and Streets Is Watching 2 mixtape too. We’re just going to keep going from there.
